Excuse me, the parking meter is calling

Now isn’t this one of the coolest parking meters in the world or what – it actually notifies you via your cellphone whenever the time is about to run out, helping you avoid a fine from our ever vigilant traffic police. This intelligent parking meter is solar-powered, so maintenance is a non-issue where power is concerned, and it even enables parking violators to pay up their fines right at the meter. Too bad it is only available in Niagara Falls and Vancouver only at this point in time.
